While the above are not “decades” per se, this is a great way to review your life, regardless of where you are in it and look for those rich and personal stories that you can write about. There is a good reason why biographies are so popular and, I would argue, that each of us has a great biography as well. We may not be the rich or famous that we read about but we certainly are qualified to write about our life and our experiences. Still looking for ideas to write about? Look no further than your favorite decade.
5. Empty nest: oh, the dreaded day when the last of your kids actually leave home to face the world on their own. After 18 plus years and a house full of memories, it’s suddenly quiet and empty…and foreign. Again, it’s like the phrase of “What do I want to be when I grow up” but this time you can call it “What will I do when my kids are all grown up”. Think about that for a moment. Consider the adventure that you can embark upon, whether it’s on your own or with your significant other. There are many opportunities…and usually more money available to spend. Check the internet to see what’s available. There has been an explosion of travel, business, recreation, causes, and even communities developed for people who find themselves to be empty-nesters. And many of them are writing about it, whether it’s through a blog, a book, or even letters. You will find many examples and many stories of Baby Boomers writing about the things that you are now going to be able to do…so join them and write!
